Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
A nice article indeed, and here a very nice excerpt from it:

"Ferdinand parle couramment [l'allemand], qu'il avait commencé à apprendre avant 1914. "Ce peuple m'a toujours intéressé. Ce que je préfère chez les Allemands ? Les Allemandes... L'amitié entre nos deux pays, l'Europe sont la plus belle chose du XXe siècle avec le jour où l'homme a marché sur la Lune."

Sorry for the not francophone crowd, no time for the translation rigth now.

For leaders going through the war: one of the few positive side of Chirac is that he went the real thing during the Algeria war all the hard way. And it seems that he learnt from it. A pity Bush didn't had the same moral compass...

La répartie est dans l'escalier. Elle revient de suite.
